What is web scraping ?

Let’s say your boss at work gave you a task where he wants you to extract about 1000 product from a website, structure the data and save it to a database, would you copy paste manually all the product details from the product name, url and price ? I can imagine you would work days and nights and you wont finish the task, so this is where web scraping shines. So web scraping, or web harvesting or web data extraction is like writing a script that will automate data extraction from websites in a matter of minutes !.

Why learn Web Scraping ?

Whether you’re a data analyst, a web developer or even someone who wants to work as a freelancer you should learn web scraping. 

For a data analyst building a dataset is extremely important, so without web scraping you simply can’t generate it in addition to that adding web scraping in your resume is a plus for you.

Web scraping can be used in a variety of fields, so let me give you some examples on what you can do with it:

Generate leads,

Drop shipping where basically you gonna constantly scrape products from different online stores and show case them on your website to make money,

Instructor Details

Hello there, I m Ahmed Rafik, I started learning how to program when I was 15 years old. Throughout the years I ve been focusing on both backend (PYTHON, C#, JAVA) and frontend (HTML, JAVASCRIPT, CSS) technologies. During the university I started learning about web scraping and more specifically I ve put all of my interest on SCRAPY, this passion has grown on me and lead to my decision to work as a full time web developer and scraper, the success I had kept me learning new stuff on daily basis.

    Best scraping teacher! This course is good for begginers. Clear and easy explanation from Ahmed and responses inside Q&A section like lightning. I recommend Ahmed’s other advanced course: Modern Web Scraping with Python using Scrapy and Splash. Best of luck!

    Such a great course. As a data science student, I find myself needing to use web scraping to create or expand a data set. I love that LXML allows me to use XPath expressions, and it’s more lightweight than Scrapy. Ahmed is a great instructor. He responds to messages very quickly, and is very helpful. I highly recommend this course if you are starting out with web scraping. There are also advanced techniques like using recursion for pagination, and using Scrapy Splash to scrape JavaScript.

    The course felt somehow challenging at the beginning. Then I spent some time gathering further basic knowledge, going through some other sources. Once I figured the concept, I came back to this course and I want to say a big THANK YOU for categorizing parser methods so well, precise and clearly. Start with Ahmed’s examples in your practice but keep practicing with your favorite websites, other examples. This course is all you need to begin practicing, and in no time you will nail it!
